Shrine of San Gennaro on Mulberry St. in Little Italy

The 85th annual Feast of San Gennaro, a religious and cultural festival, will be held through Sunday, September 25, in Little Italy. This lower Manhattan neighborhood served as the first settlement for hundreds of thousands of Italian immigrants who came to the United States in the early part of the 20th century. San Gennaro is the patron saint of Naples.
